Hong Kong, China, taken on December 22, 2015
Right before taking off from Hong Kong to Siem Reap yesterday, the plane stopped at the perfect spot for me to witness the opening of the sky to let the sun out. The gigantic rays illuminated the layered mountains, and if you look carefully, you could even see the cable cars of Ngong Ping 360 on the right!
Toronto, Canada, taken on August 23, 2011
Airports are the gates to many boundaries and one of my favourite places in any city…aside from the queues that always accompany. My departure from Toronto in 2011 after the summer holidays was quite memorable as I was sent off by a timely sunset at the airport. Au revoir!
Keflavik, Iceland, taken on August 24, 2015
Final meal of my most recent trip to Iceland – breakfast at Keflavik airport. As my flight was 7:35 in the morning and I had stayed in the airport all night, a gigantic breakfast sounded pleasing, but this was almost even too much for me. Let’s see what we have here…scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, beans, smoked salmon, potato wedges, and toast. Boy, I was so stuffed that morning that lunch wasn’t even necessary. Bye bye Iceland, for now!
[Travel time] Home sweet home…or not??? Major delays at London Heathrow meant that I had to miss my connecting flight to Glasgow, but before I dealt with that, I had to get through border control first. “Up to 30 minutes” huh…I think it took around 40 minutes to get to the front of the line. What a great end to the trip and great beginning of the year in the UK…at least I got in!
Finally, it’s time to leave Toronto. Waiting at gate B19 at the Toronto Pearson Airport to take me to my new home for the next three years…mixed feelings, but there’s no turning back.
